    Ok, what are the offline tests for my hard drive?

    1 is chkdsk, a pretty basic test. I recommend 1 of the 2 commands below
    Code:
    chkdsk X: /r
    chkdsk X: /f /r
    X: is the partition, change the partition letter to the partition letter of Windows for you, this is standard C but can be changed.
    There isn't much difference between the commands, but the 2nd command with /f ensures that possible errors are being fixed although /r includes /f and recovers readable data from the bad sectors, normally not necessary though but better to add it
    The other is SeaTools, this test doesn't work proper for SSD's but I don't know how it acts with SSHD's.

     HDD TEST

    Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Run following tests
    1. Short Drive Self Test
    2. Short generic
    3. Long generic

    If the short generic fails, no need for the long generic.
    Note   Note
    Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.

    And about the safe mode issue, to be honest I only tried the shift + restart method, I know that there are a couple of other ways to do this. If I am able to boot into safe mode is there something I can do there?

    A method I like is to configure safe mode in msconfig, you need an admin command prompt (or command prompt in advanced troubleshooting options) and enter following command
    Code:
    start msconfig
    in msconfig go to the boot tab, select safe mode, click apply > ok and reboot.
    I'm not sure if this works, but if this works and your laptop doesn't crash in safe mode (at all time) then we can focus on other things instead of the hardware

    Ohh weird, I tried to boot into safe mode through msconfig, which caused another bsod but when windows loaded back up it booted me into safe mode. I'm just gonna leave it here, in case I can't get back into it.
